This Sunday, those wonderful folks from Obscure Games will be back in Polish Hill, playing some games at West Penn. This time, it is Human Curling —
Played in a gymnasium, teams take turns pushing players in swivel chairs across the gym floor, scoring points for accuracy and distance. Teams position players strategically in order to pull off complicated ricochets and other high-scoring plays, while simultaneously trying to tag-out members of the opposing team. And though the US Olympic Curling Teams have not fared well, in this weekend’s tournament, Obscure Games teams will bring honor back to the US and to Pittsburgh by competing to be named “Human Curling Champions of the World.”
The games begin on February 28, from 10:30AM – 1:30PM. There is more information and a place to register a team on the Obscure Games site.
